Umbria

From north to south, from east to west, in Umbria it is a continuous ascent and descent of hills and slopes on which prevail the gray-green colors of the olive trees and the orderly array of vineyards interspersed with countless and placid places rich in art, history and tradition. The wines produced in Umbria are both white and red - practically equally - followed by sweet wines produced with grapes left to dry on racks, of which the best representatives remain the Vin Santo, which in Umbria boasts a long and consolidated tradition, exactly like in other areas of Italy, and Sagrantino di Montefalco Passito.

In Umbria both white and red grapes are cultivated, and both represent an important factor in the enology of the region. Unlike other regions in which a specific style of wine dominates, in Umbria, also due to its tradition, the production is divided, almost equally, between white and red wines. Among the white grapes is certainly the Grechetto to play the primary role, an autochthonous grape of Umbria spread throughout the region and with which they produce interesting whites, both in purity, and mixed with other grapes and in particular with the Chardonnay. The most important red grape is Sagrantino, which despite being almost exclusively present in Montefalco - its area of ​​origin - wines produced with this grape are today among the most representative of all of Umbria. Among the other white grapes of the region are Malvasia Bianca, Trebbiano Toscano, Trebbiano Spoletino, Verdello, Canaiolo Bianco and Procanico, while red grapes include Sangiovese, Ciliegiolo, Canaiolo Nero, Montepulciano, Barbera and, in particular , Gamay introduced in the area of ​​Lake Trasimeno for over a century and with which interesting wines are produced. In Umbria there are also the so-called "international" grapes such as Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Bianco and Riesling, for those with white grapes, as well as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Nero and Cabernet Franc, for red berried grapes.
